why can't a black-hole absorb its own black body radiation? (Black body radiation is also and electro magnetic field like light and so a black-hole with its intense gravitational field is expected not to emit even blackbody radiation also!!!!)

Hi nag555, welcome to physicsforums!
A black-hole does absorb a lot of its own radiation; basically all of it that isn't directed exactly (radially) outward----but the radiation that is directed outward, is able to escape.

in that case, any person who jumps on earth radially outward should also escape gravity!!!!!

Any radiation released inside the event horizon will not escape. Radiation released outside it by in-falling material can escape if it is emitted in the right direction. Hawking radiation is different and is not like black body radiation. See the link in the previous post for information on it.

Why? People can't jump as fast as light....

The closer to an event horizon an object is, the faster it needs to move (for our purposes, in the radial direction) to escape. As the object approaches the event horizon, the escape (radial) velocity approaches the speed of light.
